BARBARIAN PROPHECIES - Horizon
Absolutely the best Barbarian Prophecies album I've ever heard. It's just so diverse but not overly experimental. It's got elements of death metal and black together but it's also weaved into the genre of melodic death metal. The vocals are brutal (female) it doesn't sound like female vocals at all. But yes, these guys did a great job on everything on here. They seem to capture all avenues of metal here which makes it so not boring or long drawn out 52 minutes of boredom. It's anything but that. I like the tempo changes, the melodies, the brutality and the calm (when there is some!). I'm greatly appreciating the band's effort to step up their potential.
